My friend that came oh too soon,
Remind me to stop and take a look at the moon.
Every hour, minute, and second I saw,
Seem to leave me more and more in awe.
You are filled with regret,
About something you did not let.
Tick tick tock you went so quick,
Almost as instantly as a click.
The memories that we will always remember,
And in a split moment it is gone and we surrender.


The author's comments:

Watching the lives of all my grandparents, learning about their past and watching them never take life for granted inspired me to write this. I hope by reading this, people will realize life is short and can be taken away at any moment. It is important to live for yourself and the good of others because you only have one life to live.
